It's because we're an organization based on team success. Washington goes as far as Ovechkin takes them. He's the golden child. He calls the shots. It's no coincidence that Boudreau got canned within days of the public spat.
I wouldn't want that job as a coach. You become a puppet. Do what Ovechkin wants or lose your job. Defeats the point of coaching.
